The World Cup in Brazil is over, and all football teams are ready to go home and start preparing for the new season. Well, some prepare with training, others with heavy drinking… Japanese defender Atsuto Uchida, on the other hand, is going to try catch them all by joining Pocket Monster XY: Hakai no Mayu‘s cast as a seiyuu.
The character he will be portraying is actually a character portraying him. Usshi is a hotel bearer who’s not only physically based on Uchida, but has a name the football star was given as a nickname by his German colleagues.
Apart from him, the new AKB48 leader Mayu Watanabe is also going to participate as a guest star. She’s voicing the narrator in the movie’s Pikachu short – Pikachu, Kore Nanno Kagi?
Let’s just hope this won’t make his club Schalke 04 miss him too dearly!
